Moss Lehlokoa honoured for his commitment to the community
The DStv Mzansi Viewers’ Choice Awards, hosted this
past weekend, saw leading financial services provider 1Life, award Moss Lehlokoa
with the 1Life Life Changer Award.
The award, now in its second consecutive year, aims to recognise an individual who
is making a real difference within their community, by selflessly committing
themselves to giving back.
“The selfless nature of giving back often means that these individuals shy away from
being celebrated,” says Katharine Liese, Head of Marketing Financial Services at
1Life. “It is with this in mind that we encourage people to nominate those in their
communities who they feel deserve such recognition. There is so much great work
being done out there and often it goes unnoticed.”
Moss is a remarkable individual with a passion for making a real change in the
community of Diepsloot, through empowering the youth. Using his profession as a
mechanic, he teaches the youth to fix cars and work with what they have. On top of
that, he is a mentor and a father to many who he has taken under his wing, keeping
them in school and providing for those in need.
“Moss simply blew us away and left us speechless. He is so deserving of this award
and we feel honoured to be able to acknowledge his commitment, work and active
participation in his community. We trust this award will go a long way in motivating
Moss to continue his efforts in changing lives and making a difference to those
around him,” continues Liese.
Although ultimately a tough decision, given that there were so many incredible
people nominated in 2018, the judging criteria to select the award winner was based
on the impact that the nominee has on their community through their initiative,
along with how they addressed a real community need.
“We see the value in recognising all these incredible individuals who are playing a
larger role in positively changing the lives of their communities. We hope to
continue with the recognition each year as part of celebrating Mzansi’s people and
its spirit. Again, our congratulations must be extended to Moss. We look forward to
the continued fruits of your labour – you have certainly led from the front,”
